Electrical Review | Challenger energy suppliers join the “Big Six”

Cornwall Insight’s research showing the shake-up of the domestic retail market was featured in Electrical Review. The merger of OVO Energy and SSE and organic growth from Bulb have seen the names of challenger brands sit among the largest suppliers.

Commenting on this Katie Hickford said, “after Ovo Energy took on 5.6m SSE customers, OVO Energy tripled its domestic customer base. This saw it climb to second in the domestic market share rankings, holding 14.1% dual fuel share.

Over the next few months, we expect to pick up the impact of Covid-19 in the supply market. Some suppliers that have previously grown through face-to-face sales may be reassessing their route to market.
